The 15th Uncut Playlist Of 2010

Slightly depressing as it is to plug a designated day on which people should buy music in a shop, a probably unnecessary reminder that Record Store Day is this coming Saturday. Quickly flicking through the listings, one highlight: Rough Trade East have Michael Rother signing copies of a new Neu! 12-inch, which is presumably from the “Neu! ‘86” part of the forthcoming boxset.

While you’re there, a big recommendation for the new batch of Not Not Fun releases which came my way this week, notably a double, “On Patrol”, from the sanctified Sun Araw, and the return of his band, Magic Lantern, with “Platoon”. Both amazing records, which I’m trying to write about for the Wild Mercury Sound column in the next issue of Uncut.

Look out for the forthcoming Cave and Oh Sees records, too, and I’m back up to my neck in various Moon Duo and Wooden Shjips things, which is, as ever, a pleasure. Oh, full Ariel Pink blog any day now, I promise…
